About the memorial: The only information about this memorial, apart from the transcript, is that it is in "Bloomsbury Cemetery", but no such place seems to exist. I have placed the pin on St George's Gardens, Bloomsbury, as these are developed from an 18th/19th century cemetery. Website link attached.
